  Tabanus: From

Lee passed away on April 20, 2015 peacefully at KC Hospice & Pallative Care, just nine days after his 87th birthday. A celebration of Lee's life will take place at his home on Saturday, April 25th, at 2:00pm. Wear bright clothes and big smiles for the celebration. Lee was born on April 11, 1928 just 4 minutes before his identical twin brother Jerry Jerome Magee in Chicago Illinois. His parents were Jerome Pratt and Irene Travis Magee. The twins were raised by their grandparents Eva & Harry Walker in Omaha Nebraska. They both graduated from Nebraska University with BA degrees. Lee served in the Army at Ft. Riley from 1951 to 1953. Attending Creighton University on the GI Bill, he obtained his law degree and was a member of Nebraska Bar for over 50 years. All his life he was an avid Nebraska Cornhusker fan. He practiced law working for the Internal Revenue Service for 30 years as an Estate and Gift Tax attorney. He received a Master's degree in Estate Tax and Law from Missouri University. He married Laverne Myers in 1963 and was married for 30 years until her passing. He married Donna Mosbaugh in 1995 and they were inseparable until he passed. <He had lifelong interests in bridge, chess, backgammon, running and crosswords. In chess, he is a member of the Nebraska Chess Hall of Fame and state champion many times. He has been touted as the best chess player ever in the state of Nebraska.> In bridge he had attained the rank of platinum life master in the American Contract Bridge League with over 11,000 master points. He was gifted with incredible intellect and joyful personality and had many loyal lifelong friends. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Wayside Waifs are suggested because of Lee's love for his rescued dogs. Lee is now in heaven with Jesus and God bless him.
